Encore Fellowships Network - Finalists for the Eisner Prize

$25,000 Award for Intergenerational Excellence


The Encore movement in Australia is enjoying a wave of positive attention. An enthusiastic group of interested people and organisations met with Encore.org Founder and CEO Marc Freedman and Doug Jacquier in Sydney on 4 June 2013. Doug, the former CEO of Australian not-for-profit Connecting Up , is now working to organise an Encore Fellows affiliate program for the country.

The Encore Fellowships program now has a presence in Australia. Encore.org is pleased to be working with our new Network Developer there, Doug Jacquier.

With some 5.5 million ‘baby boomers’ now entering the later stages of their working careers in Australia and around 100,000 significant charities and not-for-profit organisations looking to build their capacity, there is strong interest in ‘second acts for the greater good’.
